We still need 15 more kayakers to help with swim safety at the Cottage Lake Triathlon Sat June 15,2013
We meet at O dark thirty, but the coffee and bagels are great ;-)
The details: We meet at the swim start at Cottage Lake Park at 7am, spend 20 minutes going over what each of us needs to do and then support the race for about 3 hours. The race starts at 8am.
We are primarily responsible for monitoring the edges of the course, chasing down wayward swimmers and providing a rest bouy (our boat) to tired swimmers. We also provide encouragement as well as transport some swimmers back to shore when requested.
Come join us and help out, in addition to feeling good about your contribution, you'll meet some great people, have some coffee and bagels and even get a volunteer T shirt and whatever other cool stuff Mary rounds up from her sponsors. I will bring loaner boats for all that need them,, I am bringing kayaks for 20 people, so we should be fine on kayaks, due to personal time constraints I'm not creating a list of who is using which boat, unless we get more than 20 volunteers, we'll figure that out in the morning.
Thanks - Saul
We'll do a self rescue training session after the event for those of you that want o improve your roll.
